The Covid-19 outbreak & UNESCO's mission

UNESCO's response

The COVID-19 outbreak is a global public health crisis. It resonates deeply also at the heart of UNESCO's mission. COVID-19 tells us scientific cooperation is key when dealing with a global public health issue. It tells us that continued education must be ensured when so many children today  cannot go to school. It is a stark reminder of the importance of quality, reliable information, at a time when rumors are flourishing. It tells bout the power of culture & knowledge to strengthen human fabric and solidarity, at a time when so many people around the world must keep social distance and stay at home. UNESCO is fully committed to supporting governments for distance learning, open science, knowledge and culture sharing, as fundamental means to stand together and tighten the bonds of our shared humanity.
